I have had my mp3 player now for a year and i absolutely love it. I find it simple to drag and drop your tracks on. I must confess I have never downloaded tracks onto it so I am not sure how easy that would be.
The menu navigation is simple to negotiate. You can put your tracks onto shuffle, play tracks according to genre, artist, import date, date of release or alphabetical order. This only takes a couple of steps to do. Infact I did this at first without looking at the instructions. When you are playing tracks you can also fast forward past the ones the you don't like as you'd expect. If you've downloaded the relevent information the mp3 player will display artist, composer, genre and year. It will also display a picture of the album cover.
You can also use it to display your photos. Although I don't bother with this feature as the screen size is only about 2" x 3".
This mp3 is a very light and stylish slimline piece of equipment. It comes in a variety of colours. I bought mine a year ago for £50.00 so I'm sure these would have now gone down in price. I am not certain whether it is worthwhile paying the extra for an apple ipod.
The sound quality is very good on this. However, the earphones that come with the player are not very good so I would upgrade those.
